A couple of weeks ago was in Copenhagen as the wedding photographer for the most amazing Chicago Couple; Christine & Scott . Two american architects who’d come to Copenhagen to get married at the very romantic Thorvaldsens Museum right in the centre of the city. In the morning of the wedding they got ready on the top floor of their beautiful hotel D’angleterre, with views over Nyhavn and the city. S had not seen C getting ready and was waiting for his “first look” on the balcony. It was such a beautiful moment, seeing them both so happy and very much in love. A short walk later they got married at the museum, in what is the shortest ceremony of my my 300+ weddings I have photographed. It was a short and sweet 5 minutes long, and was followed by a lovely stroll around Thorvaldsens’ sculptures before heading out into the streets of beautiful Copenhagen for more pictures in places such as the canal, in Nyhavn and the new library.
C + S. You guys are fantastic! And so much fun! I loved spending time with you both and feels so honoured to have shared part of this special day with you. It’s obvious how at ease you are together and how natural and relaxed your relationship is. It was a cold day and you guys were just amazing walking around the city, laughing and posing and having so much fun. Thank you for everything!
Lot’s of love, always! A
Last week I had the pleasure of being the photographer for Christina & Scott’s wedding in Copenhagen. I’ll be posting a a bigger blog post with more images from their fun wedding in the near future, but until then here’s one of my favourites.

A while back I photographed a wedding at the beautiful Kragga Herrgård in Sweden. A romantic venue situated by the water outside Stockholm. To me it’s a typical swedish location; the water, the dock, lot’s of greens, forest, red houses with white gables, wild fields and old barns. It’s a picture perfect place for a wedding.
I hope April is lovely where you are. Lot’s of love. A
I love France and have been fortunate enough to shoot a lot of weddings here, in a lot of different venues, and have fallen particularly in love with a handful that I’d love to show you here. In no particular order, here’s a few of my favourite venues.
Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild is a gorgeous venue in the village of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, in the South of France. The gardens, the view, the colours, the history….well it’s all just gorgeous. Add a couple in love, their friends and family, some beautiful flowers, a nice band and you have the perfect wedding.
Le Château Diter is another fabulous venue, set beautifully amongst the hills just outside the perfume capital of Grasse. The whole region of Alpes-Maritimes is stunning and the French countryside views are spectacular. A romantic venue with pretty much everything you could ask for to host the most magnificent wedding.
Cap Estel is located in one of my absolute favourite French regions; the Côte d’Azur. This luxury venue is located on it’s own mini peninsula overlooking the sea in the commune of Èze, not far from Nice. This personal and private hotel is only available for exclusive hire – which means you have the whole place to yourself. It is a truly perfect place for a wedding.
Château de la Napoule has such a historic feel to it as well as great diversity for a wedding. There’s gardens, courtyards, balconies and medieval rooms. It has a charm and a certain mood that I love, located right by the water overlooking the ocean. Originally built in the 14th Century, however it’s last rebuild was in the early 1900′s. Dressed up for a wedding it looks absolutely beautiful and very romantic.
